Choosing the Best Liquid Nicotine

 

Electronic cigarettes are presently one of the healthier alternatives for those who wish to curtail their addiction to nicotine or smoking. However, these devices are said to reproduce the same sensation, throat hit, and satisfaction that a tobacco cigarette can produce. Well, this is because of the e liquid that contains the most sensational substance called nicotine in liquid form, which gets converted into vapor that is then inhaled to ensure identical throat hit. E liquid, also known as e juice, is one of the essentials that rule the performance of an e cigarette. Without a quality e liquid, there is no meaning of vaping an e cigarette. But this e liquid is not made up of only nicotine solution. There’s something more to it, which offers a very delicious taste as well as aroma! Don’t you think you should know about all its ingredients as well as about its preferred quality before choosing the right liquid nicotine?

The Possible Ingredients

 

On puffing an e cigarette, the smokers inhale its smoke-like vapor that goes into their lungs. Therefore, it is very essential for the smokers to know about the ingredients in e liquid. Essentially, e liquid is a concoction of varying amounts of four major ingredients namely:

 

·         Distilled Water

·         Nicotine in liquid form whose amount determines the sensation level of throat hit

·         Propylene Glycol (PG) and/or Vegetable Glycerin (VG) whose amount determines the thickness  and sweetness of vapor as well as the extent of nicotine hit

·         Flavoring whose amounts determines how tasteful and strong a flavor is

 

Apart from these major ingredients, a few liquids may contain additional ingredients such as ethyl maltol that is an organic compound acting as a flavoring and artificial flavorings. This means that the vapor is not packed with those thousands of harmful toxins and carcinogens that are present in tobacco smoke.

 

VG is a sweeter and thicker base than the PG for the liquid due to which it creates more luscious vapor clouds that taste sweeter when inhaled. On the other hand, PG is a much thinner base that is tasteless but generates more throat hit than VG, which triggers the feel of better vaping. However, because most people are sensitive to PG, the VG is more widely used as a base in e liquids. In fact, there are liquids that come with a 50/50 mix to enjoy the benefits of both the bases.

 

Now that you know about the ingredients of e liquids, you will find it easy to choose an e liquid that contains your most favorite flavor. But choosing with this knowledge of the possible ingredients will not help you to get the right liquid nicotine. For choosing the right liquid nicotine, there are some more factors for you to consider.

Factors to Focus while Choosing E Liquid

 

You know that nicotine is present in e liquid. But do you know how much nicotine is enough for you? Are you aware what kind of graded ingredients must be present in an e liquid for safe vaping? Well, these are some questions that trigger the need to consider some more factors while choosing the best e liquid.

 

Personal Smoking Habits

 

The secret key to choose the right liquid is to base your decision on your current smoking habits. How much and how many times do you smoke in a day? The answer to this question will help in choosing the desired amount of nicotine in your e liquid. For example, a light smoker smoking only some tobacco cigarettes a day will find low nicotine level very suitable and satisfying. On the other hand, a smoker smoking two packs a day will find a high nicotine level more satisfactory. But as a matter of fact, most people will prefer a level that fall in between the low and high.

 

Similarly, if you wish to puff only for few times per day, stronger nicotine liquid seems to be more satisfying. However, if you will be puffing continuously in a day, lower nicotine content is a better choice so that you do not consume too much nicotine and fall sick. You may also want to keep both high and low nicotine liquids on hand to act according to the changing preferences and cravings within a day.

 

PG or VG

 

These bases account for 80% share in your e liquid, leaving 10% each for flavorings and nicotine. They are used to dilute the nicotine and flavoring. You will have to choose from the two depending on how you wish to vape. The bottom line is that PG is meant for excellent throat hit and stronger taste, while VG is for those who love higher vapor clouds and sweeter taste. However, most smokers are found allergic to PG. So, if you fall in this category, only VG is an ideal choice for you. Otherwise, you can start with a mix of 50/50 to measure the throat hit. In case it is not up to the mark, a 30/70 VG/PG blend has to be your next choice but know that you will lose on gigantic clouds of vapor.

 

The Right Nicotine Strength

 

Nicotine solution is present in e liquids in different mg levels such as 0, 6, 12, 16, 18, 24, and 36, which are labeled as zero, extra light, light, extra medium, medium, strong, and extra strong. The strength of the solution directly varies with the amount of nicotine per mg/ml. For example, a liquid of zero strength contains no nicotine at all (0mg/ml), while strong solutions hold high levels of nicotine (36mg/ml). The reason why nicotine is offered in varying levels is that smokers experience cravings of differing intensities during the different times of the day. While a few may crave more during day time, others may crave less after dinner. This raises the need to use e liquids of different nicotine strength. While buying, look for mg on the e liquid bottle to get the right nicotine strength. 

 

Flavors

 

An e liquid without a flavor does not give any taste. At present, you have several flavors to choose from: vanilla, tobacco, menthol, orange, banana, grape, pineapple, mint, chocolate, green tea, and coffee. The list is really big! Therefore, choosing the best liquid nicotine flavors is actually a process of trial and error. However, it will not take much time to know which flavor you like the most. You may even think of combining the flavors to accentuate the overall taste.

 

The Wrong Ingredients

 

There are some manufacturers who add harmful ingredients to e liquid such as diacetyl and acetonin. Therefore, you need to check on the bottles for all the ingredients added to the liquid. Before purchasing, it is better to check for customer reviews online, which are highly transparent and reliable.

 

Quality

 

This is the most important factor to check for! Ensure that PG/VG, nicotine, and flavorings are of pharmaceutical grade or food grade as mandated by the FDA. It is only these grades that ensure safe and pleasant vaping. Similarly, check for the production date and shelf life.
